ANTHONY WALLACE/AFP/Getty Images Hong Kong began a massive clean-up on September 17 after Typhoon Mangkhut raked the city, shredding trees and bringing damaging floods, in a trail of destruction that left dozens dead in the Philippines and millions evacuated in southern China.
Philippine presidential adviser Francis Tolentino said the dead included an infant and another child who were among four people killed in a landslide in Nueva Vizcaya, one of several provinces battered by the typhoon.
Mangkhut earlier lashed the Philippines, sparking landslides and building collapses that killed at least 65 people, with another 43 missing.
Authorities said they believed many of those buried in the landslide were gold miners who'd been working illegally at a mine formerly operated by Benguet Corp., a Philippine mining firm.
Mangkhut's winds weakened to 105 miles per hour after the storm blew across Luzon island toward the South China Sea, aiming at southern China and Hong Kong, where residents braced for the worst.
Chinese media reported that more than 2.45 million people had been evacuated in mainland Guangdong province. "Prepare for the worst", Hong Kong Security Minister John Lee Ka-chiu urged residents.
Mangkhut made landfall in the Guangdong city of Taishan at 5 p.m. local time Sunday, packing wind speeds of 162 km/h.
